Wedding season – best dressed guest!

Although summer isn’t quite here yet, wedding season is fast approaching. Now is the perfect time to get your outfit sorted to ensure you’re the best-dressed guest and don’t have a last minute panic trying to find something to wear.

We’ve all been guilty of leaving wedding outfit shopping until the last minute and then not being able to find anything we are truly happy with, or despairing because we can’t find anything to fit our boobs. Pepperberry is here to help you choose the perfect outfit so you look and feel fabulous all day long.  

Our Floral Prom Dress in a luxurious silk blend is an ideal wedding guest look. The bright colours and fresh print are perfect for a summer wedding, with flattering pleats from the waist this is a fail-safe choice. If you’re wearing a hat or fascinator, or even a ‘hatinator’, then why not try matching it to one of the many colours in the dress?

If you prefer a fuller skirt, our Floral Lace Detail Prom Dress with net underskirt could be just what you’re looking for. The floral print and pretty lace waist detail complement each other perfectly and will ensure you stand out for all the right reasons on the day. Flats and a flower in your hair complete this laid back look, for a dressier option we would pair it with matching heels and clutch bag.  

If prints aren’t your thing but you worry that in a plain dress you may be mistaken for a bridesmaid, our Crepe Waterfall Dress in Dark Mint or French Navy could be the perfect choice. This dress looks great with bright or nude heels, and our Gem Statement Necklace adds the finishing touch.

Cream is the perfect hue for a timeless look, classic doesn’t have to mean dull though. Try our Embroidered Stripe Dress with layered mesh detail in the skirt and embroidery detail at the neckline. Keep things simple by pairing with our Cutwork Clutch Bag in the same colour for understated glamour.

A white dress should be reserved for the bride but there’s nothing to stop you wearing a white trouser suit for the ultimate in wedding guest chic. Try our Linen Jacket and Wide Leg Linen Trousers paired with our Scallop Neck Top in Violet or Green for a pop of colour.

We hope this helps to take the stress out of choosing an outfit, leaving you free to enjoy the day. Which of these outfits would you wear? Do you have any tips for choosing clothes and accessories for a wedding?

Our Top Five Oscars Outfits

We’ve been admiring the beautiful dresses worn by the A-listers to this year’s Oscars. There were so many gorgeous gowns on show; this has to be our favourite red carpet event of the year.

It was difficult to choose just a few but we’ve managed to narrow it down to our top five.

Our overall winner has to be Salma Hayek who shows off her incredible curves in a figure hugging Alexander McQueen dress, worn with a gold box clutch and an on trend ‘up-do’.

Jennifer Hudson looked glamorous in a glittering navy dress by Roberto Cavalli which she paired with a matching Jimmy Choo clutch. We love her metallic nails and statement ring.

Charlize Theron looked simply stunning with cropped hair and a white Dior gown, she finished her outfit off perfectly with just the right amount of diamonds.

Naomi Watts sparkled in a futuristic silver sequin gown by Armani Prive worn with Jimmy Choo shoes.

George Clooney’s gorgeous girlfriend Stacie Kiebler wore a beaded Naeem Khan dress, accessorised with the silver fox himself.

Let us know what you think of their outfits and accessories, do you have a favourite from the night?

Best in Show at the British Academy Awards 2013

Bow Detail Cardigan in Red from the Vintage Americana trend.

Last night, the famous faces of the silver screen were in London for the BAFTAs. Despite the cold, rainy weather, there was no shortage of glamorous dresses on the red carpet.  Here, we have chosen our favourites from the night…

Continuing with the Monochrome trend we’ve seen a lot of recently were actresses Juno Temple and Hayley Atwell. Both opted for a classic and elegant occasionwear option. If you’d like to try a more subtle approach to Monochrome then why not try our Piping Detail Blouse.

We were happy to see that in contrast with the gloomy weather there were lots of ‘pops of colour’ akin to the Vintage Americana trend in our spring collection, with lots of reds and blues. Jessica Chastain was simply stunning in her blue Roland Mouret gown and Laura Bailey kept it simple in her red Roksanda Illinic gown.

Marion Cotillard  stood out on the night in her in Dior Couture yellow gown. For a more wearable nod to the citrus colours of spring, why not try accessorizing your outfit with our Stitch Detail Shopper Bag in orange?

Jennifer Lawrence avoided the showers by draping a structured coat over her gown. For a spring cover up that works for you, shop coats to see the range available from Pepperberry.

You can see all the red carpet looks here. Let us know who was wearing your favourite gown from last nights event.
